spector rebop or pedulla rapture?
what should i get and why? havent played either.
Isn't the re-bop cheaper than the pedulla?
Spector has some nicer stuff.
You will get the Spector.
Pedulla 100%, I owned a few Pedullas and a few Spectors, the Pedullas are far better in tone and construction IMNSHO.
i played the LOW LOW end spector (Q4?) at a guitar store the other day. i a/b'd it with about 15 other ibanez's, fender's, dean's, etc and i was really impressed with the tone. nice emg pickups, nice neck with satin finish, great looking body finishes
the fretwork was...hrmm...mediocre, but this was a $400 guitar, i'd imagine the phat ones are really top notch instruments
pedulla will cost 400 more
I you haven't played either of the basses mentioned above, then you should before you make a decision.
They are both very different basses.
like by-tor said, try them out. i personaly like the sound of spector, mm and warwick and think they are nice basses but i dont like to play them. btw i just traded my warwick for a pedulla and am happy with the trade.
Not too long ago I went out shopping to buy a Spector and came home with 2 Pedulla's because I was so floored by them. They are everything I want in a bass.
Someone has LOST his mind.
This is completely unrelated, but, PollyBass, are you wearing a hair net in your avatar pic? A beret? Seriously, what the hell's going on above your head there?
That would be the "French Mop".
Ah, oui oui.
This is a no brainer. Pedulla.
I've owned both. Sold both. Bought another Rapture because I missed it the moment I sold the first one. Can't say the same for the Spector.
To me, the Rapture has the "feel" of a Jazz neck in a lighter, more player friendly instrument. Action is way low and neck is way fast. The Spector I had, which was a Czech model, felt more "guitar-like" to me--probably the neck radius/shape was not as much to my liking. The Rapture is fun to play and inspires my musicality in a way no other bass has. Both Raptures that I've owned have been single soapbar models, and I've never felt a lack of tonal possibilities.
In addition to being a better made instrument IMO (although to be honest I must confess I've never played a US Spector), Pedulla comes with Christine in customer service and the very customer-centric Michael Pedulla philosophy. I've never owned a bass from a company that showed more interest in me and, whenever I had one, my problem (no matter how large or small), than Pedulla consistently has. Very high marks in that area.
pedulla...duh!!~!! go to www.pedulla.com and check it out. They are the most personal busness ever. It has responces of people on their website. I wrote in a while back telling them how much i loved them, and they put me on it. It randomly genorates a responce, but if you see "Nick Hamlett", thats me!!~!! but yeah, e-mail them for a catalog. You will get a personalized letter that THEY wrote, and not a computer, and it is shipped first class. And about the price, this about it this way. id rather buy a expensive bass which is perfect and im going to be happy forever with, then a not so expensive bass, where i will need another in like 3 years, and have to buy another and end up spending more. Thats just my 2 cents (but pedulla man, trust me)
well although i own a pedulla pentabuzz fretless
and i think it's one of the most amazing basses i ever played, to your question i would answer buy the spector...don't kill me everybody !!
but im not a big fan of the pedulla repture which you have mentioned...
which is better than not having one in the first place
spector, buy mine
That was uncalled for.
Once again, I used something there CS, it's called humor, I know it's a hard thing to grasp sometimes. But it's worth the effort.
